Compu78 is a virtual simulation of the Roland CompuRhythm CR-78, a very influential drum machine released at the end of the 1970s. It features all the original sounds meticulously sampled at multiple accent levels and with up to eight round-robin variations depending on the sound. All the original rhythms and variations have been accurately reproduced and you can program your own rhythms in the same manner as you would on the original combined with a WS-1 programmer.
Compu78 included several KONTAKT Snapshots that reproduce the rhythms of famous songs that featured the CR-78. More info…
Mendacity is a two instrument package based on the Korg KR55 and KR55B analogue drum machines from the early 1980s. They feature all the original rhythms along with Intro and Fill-in patterns. Mendacity B contains the rhythm sets from two different KR55B models that were presumably tailored for different markets. The rhythms can be "swung" like the originals but with Mendacity, you can choose between 8th or 16th note swing. More info…
